Pacific 2020 Regional Conference Multiplicity

Virtual | Pacific Regional Conference

Spring - Summer 2020 - Details to Follow

The global emergence of the COVID-19 virus is prompting us all to be proactive and considerate in all aspects of our lives, including places of work and play. In order to prioritize the health of our campus host at San Diego State University as well as our SCUP community, the Pacific Regional Conference scheduled for April 1-2, 2020, will be re-envisioned with regards to delivery format, timeline, and experience. We will be in touch soon with information about new dates and times.

If you were planning to attend the conference, we have three asks for you:

  • Please go ahead and cancel airfare/lodging/other incidentals.
  • Please consider keeping your registration rather than cancelling it.
  • And please stay engaged as we re‐organize!

Conference Theme


Academic institutions exist in large part to spur innovation, cultivate engaged communities, and improve society through education. As technology continues to individualize how we learn, work, and connect, academic institutions must consider the benefits of personalized learning to deliver on the promise of their missions.

The SCUP 2020 Pacific Regional Conference will explore the continuum of personalized learning in higher education through the theme of “multiplicity,” offering a fresh take on diversity and inclusion, campus life, and student success. Embracing multiplicity is about acknowledging and supporting the diverse perspectives and contexts that inform how students learn and participate in their communities. Together we will investigate how higher education institutions are fostering multiplicity on campus and recognizing the potential for greater outcomes in personalized education delivery.

The unique character of the San Diego region—in particular its proximity to Mexico, its diverse racial and socio-economic population, and the ubiquitous public/private partnerships forged to deliver facilities that serve its people— sets the stage for creative approaches to integrated planning for higher ed. Building on the launch of the SCUP Strategic Plan in 2019, this conference is designed as a medley of opportunities for learning, ranging from quick and provocative talks by innovative thought leaders, concurrent sessions and master classes led by subject matter experts.

Join us to learn more about how your institution can evolve to support students’ differing perspectives on the self and community, culture and context, digital and analogue, and the many other personal factors that inform student success, including experiences beyond the campus.
